What is a Hot Night?
The Hot Night is Caryn Carrrasco’s idea, our founder. As a lifelong dancer in many styles, she wanted a place where people could just dance and focus on innovation rather than moves that are “officially” part of a particular dance.
What is Fusion?
What is Fusion? Fusion /'fyo?oZH?n/ Noun: The process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity. Is it relates to dance, fusion could most easily be summed up as follows: What happens when you take multiple dance influences and dance them to music that isn’t necessarily the “traditional” choice for those movements. Doing a Baleo in Blues Dance is fusion, an open position transition in Tango is Fusion.
For Beginning Dancers:
This is a great way to try more than one dance in a night and see what you like. Find music that makes you want to dance. Find a bridge from what you listen to, to the music that grew up with the dances.
Dance with people who are laid-back and not hung up on what dance you “should” do to music. This is a chance to dance as you as possible and have a great time doing it.
